§ Synopsis §

The great cathedrals were the wonders of the Medieval World - the tallest buildings since the pyramids and the showpieces of Medieval Christianity. Yet they were built at a time when most of us lived in hovels. Architectural historian Jon Cannon explores who were the people that built them and how were they able to achieve such a bold vision.

I have been looking everywhere for a DVD or downloadable copy of this - can you tell me where to go in order to procure a copy for my home? Of all the many documentaries about the great cathedrals, this one is THE most respectful of the intentions of the builders and the transcendent glory of the buildings.
